Attracting the right students is only one part of the solution to student success. High retention and graduation rates speak volumes about the quality of your institution’s educational programs and experiences. Many institutions work hard to enroll
students, only to see those students leave before earning a credential or degree. Having an effective retention plan remains a critical component of Strategic Enrollment Management, and of reaching your enrollment goals while reducing enrollment costs.
Our Persistence, Retention and Student Success workshop provides you with the tools to do a comprehensive examination of your institution’s overall approach to student transitions and support. Our workshop leaders will help you get to the core of
the issues impacting your student outcomes.
Customized for your specific challenges and goals, the workshop begins by assisting you to know how to do a detailed review of your institution’s retention and graduation rates from first term to six years. This will then help you develop and
implement a practical plan to:
Take a more strategic and integrated approach to student success
Create a retention plan that works within your unique institutional culture
Deepen understanding of your student profile, including transfer and high need students
Identify and address barriers that impede student retention and success
Improve student satisfaction rates
Enhance programs and services designed to help students succeed
Increase the number of students taking advantage of these programs and services
Make sure appropriate offices and departments are well prepared to support student success and satisfaction
Put you on the path to more Strategic Enrollment Management
